Re: RI or HCI

I wonder how people select between these 2 schools of equal standard....I felt a lot is based on COP....the higher the better....how many really understand what is the different beside SAP and non-SAP... One is 'ang moh' culture and the other is 'cheena' culture. So it all depends on which type of ...

Re: Further Maths making a come back and removal of Project

Of course, depends on what you define as "hard math", there are math subjects that are harder in comparison to those listed. As an ex-math tutor, I always gently remind students who think math is useless (quite a lot of them), that math will be very essential in university. Some of my ex-students t...

Re: Nanyang Girls' High School [*IP]

I'm currently a student there and I'm pretty much terrible at Chinese. I DSA'd in via academics and based on my opinion, they want people who are not afraid to speak up (supported by a speech training program conducted in chinese), possesses leadership qualities, academically strong or are talented...

Re: JCs - Parents Networking Group

Do Uni students require laptop or MacBook for daily use in the U? I can't imagine not having a laptop at all, or at least some sort of access to a computer, although this might have to do with my subject (law). A lot of resources are now online, some of which are much harder to find offline or requ...

Re: 2014 A Level Results

They don't bother with GP, MT and PW but would take into consideration the 4th core subject. Depends on the university. Oxford, for example, gives offers of AAA. An offer may or may not specify subjects, depending on subject combination as well as the subject one is applying for. For instance, a ki...

Re: 2015 Uni Open House

My own view is SMU location is good. Easily accessible. But if my girl A level result is good enough to go into NUS / NTU. I would prefer she go into NUS/NTU. Hence, I am quite surprise that my friend's girl choose SMU over NUS/NTU. I told my friend frankly my view and she quite upset and said I do...

Re: 2014 A Level Results

Sadly, there are non-RI students who think RI is most superior. Same logic, a lot of local students thinks that overseas universities are better than local universities. Sadly it is not necessarily good for everyone. :siao: I understand that not everyone might be suited to studying in a Liberal Art...

Re: Guide: All About A Levels

Also is the amount required to be memorised just as heavy for both? I would really appreciate any advice or info on the above. THank you ...

Re: How much to budget to read medicine in UK?

If you add in the other costs like lodging and living expenses, roughly what do you think the annual budget would be? :scratchhead: Try looking for the universities' cost calculators. For example, http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/fees-fundi ... ergraduate and http://www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduat ......
